CLAIM: Demi Moore “Literally Starving” Herself For Sympathy

Truth rating: 0

Tabloids love nothing more than sex allegations and drastic weight swings – so why not print a story that combines the two?

OK! magazine wants to keep milking the reports of an alleged Ashton KutcherSara Leal hotel tryst, and so, like other tabloids in recent weeks, it’s going after Demi Moore with speculation that she’s coming apart at the seams. Specifically, OK! claims Moore is “literally starving” herself for attention.

The actress is said to be “subsisting almost entirely on cigarettes and energy drinks” in a desperate bid for sympathy, purports the magazine. “Demi hasn’t sat down and had an actual meal since this whole thing started,” explains a so-called “insider” for the tab, which pegs Moore’s weight at 90 pounds.

Another OK! source insists, “Demi gets morbid comfort from people feeling sorry for her. She’ll take whatever attention she can get right now – even pity.” Gossip Cop would actually describe the magazine’s obsession with Moore’s weight as “morbid.” She’s been criss-crossing the country for work and dealing with the media firestorm around her marriage. But Moore is absolutely NOT starving herself on purpose.

A source close to the actress slams the premise and says it’s “not true” that Moore is looking for publicity stunts to increase the current media glare, let alone endangering herself by “deliberately losing weight.” This OK! story is definitely not OK.
